About
Designed, built and run by a team of Kiwi climbers and yoga teachers, Uprising is home to a huge bouldering gym, yoga studio and a fitness gym all under one roof. There’s even a cafe serving our own signature blend of locally roasted coffee, and a pro shop for apparel and gear. Bouldering at Uprising is an indoor adventure sport activity. It’s fitness in disguise, challenging and fun for both the muscles and the mind.
Duration: 1-2 hours

Love Uprising! Great set up. Lots of different levels to cater for a range of abilities. New climbs always mean there's a new challenge.

Grandsons birthday party held there.

Plenty to keep them occupied on the climbing walls, not matter what level of ability.

Followed by yummy pizza and surperb chips.

Highly recommended

We had a fabulous time. Bouldering has got to be my least fave way to climb (because in short you aren't attached to anything that will save your life lol) but even I found climbs that I could do!

Miss 12 thought it was going to be a pretty short visit (as I usually can't complete anything) but she was super impressed they had boulder problems at my skill level lolololol.

The staff were fab, the food was great and the climbers were friendly, all in all, a great way to wile away a few hours (and burn some calories to boot!)

Uprising is an epic bouldering gym with a good cafe attached. The route setting is awesome and there are new routes every week.

I love this place! Staff are friendly, the cafe is sweet and most importantly the climbs are amazing. Varied and different levels, overhangs, slab, whatever your heart desires. Huge space! With a good little gym inside too. Yoga classes and massage on offer too. What more could you ask for really!

A range of creative bouldering problems; there's something for everyone I would think - beyond the climb, there's yoga, a fitness gym, and massages available. If you sign up for 4 weeks' membership, it's just a dollar more per day than the day rate, and includes a yoga class and a discount on massage.

I go to a pretty great climbing gym back home in the states, and Uprising definitely stands up (pun intended).
Like any successful gym this has also got a well-loved community vibe, and staff that love climbing.
There's a lounge above the kitchen with couches and tables, so you can work and fuel up on coffee between climbs, and they cook a mean thin-crust pizza.
